We could experience a spiritual feeling at this location/place. It would be recommended to wash(/purify) your hand(/flesh and spirit) at the river before paying your respect to the sun goddess Amaterasu. (￣人￣)

Honestly left a lot to be desired. It’s an enormously important place in japan, and Shintoism. If you’re going to go, go for those reasons. The grounds and shrine are beautiful, but don’t compare to other shrines that aren’t so out of the way.

Absolutely massive temple complex. A little off the beaten path for foreign visitors, but definitely worth a visit in person. A lot of local traffic but despite the large number of people coming and going the place still manages to be immaculate and serene.

Don't expect too much from Japan's most famous shrine, doesn't mean inspiring for tourist. Most visit for praying.
I presume the streets to take you there, with historical buidlings and local snacks is most attractive for foreigners

The temple is a great place to visit, with many trees around. There is also a souvenir store to buy fortune bags. One the way out of the temple is small street with traditional Japanese style stores and restaurants.
